    Super Shelter question

    I have looked and even emailed HH but have not found an answer to this question.
    will the SS fit the safari deluxe ? I realize it may not make it to the ends of the hammock but it should still preform right?

    normally hennessy gets great customer service. I would say the pad would work but I dont know if the SS works as a system with it. 108 by 56 is the dimensions of the explorer deluxe and 112 by 52 is the safari deluxe. I just dont know what to tell you. Id say try calling them tomorrow. I think the main issue would be the length or the asym tie outs lining up. but i dont know

    The SS comes in 2 sizes:

    #1 is for EXPEDITION, BACKPACKER, HYPERLITE and EVADER.

    #2 is for EXPLORER ULTRALITE, EXPLORER DELUXE and SURVIVOR.

    The Safari comes with the radiant bubble pad for insulation. I don't believe the SS will fit it though.

    The super shelter is not recommended for the Safari. While you could probably get it to go on I don't think it would fit properly. Fit is essential for the Super Shelter to work most effectively.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    You might tear some part of the SS using it on the Safari. Especially if you put the hammock side tie outs through both left and right openings/loops on the UC/pad. As the safari is quite a bit bigger than the other HH hammocks, both longer and wider, with it tied out to the sides there may be too much strain. Same thing on the ends. I can't say for sure though.

    Now the pad would probably be OK under neath by itself, especially if you did not have both hammock side guy out lines through both pad loops. But I can't say how well the pad would be positioned without the UC, and of course the UC is a significant part of the overall system. I have a SS and a Safari but I have never attempted to test them together due to worries about the above.

    I have used a torso length WB and a JRB MW ( but not using both side loops) on the Safari both worked great. I do rig some cord to to make up for the extra length of the safari. BTW, it is worth working out a solution, as I personally find the Safari to be the most comfortable non-bridge hammock I have tried(mine is a No Net model). Though it is def NOT the lightest single layer hammock, even not counting the large 23 oz PU Hex tarp that comes with it.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    email response

    I am confused by you saying that Hennessy did not reply to your email. I have found them to be very responsive, and much more quickly than I would have expected. Are you sure you are using a correct email address?

    Thanks for the replies. I got an email from HH today (I guess I was a little impatient) and they said it would not work. I will look into the suggestions, and am open to more as well. BillyBob58 your review of the safari helped me make my decision and the super shelter not working is not a big deal to me if it was I would have bought a hammock that was listed on the SS page, I was just hoping I would get a sure it works fine. I was thinking of a down UQ for the winter hangs in Oregon, but I am in TX now and doubt I will need much more than my fleece TQ camping on the rivers here.

    PDA I guess I did not word the original post well, I spent a considerable amount of time researching what brand of hammock to buy and after all of the emails, and phone calls to HH and posts about their customer service made my decision for me. I was not trying to say there CS was lacking.
